Song Meaning
Verse 1
Piccadilly Circus in the dead of night
Just passing time beneath the lights
Up in town and all alone
Got no business so minds his own
Verse 2
The hotel room is lonely and cold
He might as well go for a stroll
Idly looking in a hi-fi shop
Footsteps, a chuckle, and one hard slap
Verse 3
And they didn't even see his face
See him flinch or hear him groan
They didn't even see his eyes
One mean blow and on they ran
Verse 4
He put his fingers to his side
And felt his flesh was open wide
He felt the rent the blow had made
For the hand that fell had held a blade
Verse 5
And they didn't even see his face
See him stumble, hear his cry
They didn't even see his eyes
Just lashed out in passing by
Verse 6
What can it mean?
Who can make some sense of that?
Did it mean a thing to them?
What can make a mind like that?
Verse 7
Those forty stitches helped him over
Who can live life over his shoulder?
He tried to put it in his past
And flew safe home back to Belfast
Verse 8
And they didn't even see his face
See him stagger, watch him fall
They didn't even see his eyes
They never knew him at all
Verse 9
Never knew him
Tried to kill him
Never knew him
Tried to kill him
